1. Pretend you’re a Viking on the boat out to the island.
Vikings had ferries, right?
4. Clamber over old-as-dinosaurs rocks at Staffin Bay.
6. Take a jungle walk around Portree.
Head up the hill behind the hospital and you’ll find Skye is more Jurassic than you thought it was.
7. Marvel at The Old Man of Storr.
The most Lord of the Rings thing on the island - both in name and view.
9. Be the only person on the beach at Talisker bay.
You’ll be blown away if the sun comes out on this volcanic sand beach too.
10. Fill up on seafood and whiskey at The Old Inn in Carbost.
Just over the road from the Talisker distillery you can continue to sample their wares at The Old Inn, where you can also get a plate full of locally caught seafood.
11. Watch wild dolphins swim in Portree Harbour.
Take a boat trip at the harbour and you might just see wild eagles too.
12. Cook a catch of the day from The Oyster Shed.
Lobsters and langoustines for less than a tenner, and of course, fresh oysters galore.
15. Look out to the end of the earth from the ruins of Duntulm castle.
Legend has it an heir to an ancient throne was dropped onto the rocks from this very window.
16. Drive along the spectacular Quiraing Mountain Pass.
Pale underwear not recommended.
17. Be mesmerised by the waterfall over Kilt Rock.
The UK’s very own Niagara.
18. Witness incredible close-to-midnight sunsets.
Skye is light for almost 24 hours during the summer and seeing a sunset after bedtime will spin you right out.
